Doves are in simple terms, pigeons; they are excellent navigators and can be trained to do many wonderful things. After their release they easily find their way home.
They are very hygienic birds who love to clean themselves. (Birds used for this kind of display are usually fed after their performance to reduce the risk of droppings.)
Described as a small head sitting on a short neck with a rounded stout body, they have unique bills with which they can easily suck water. Their main diet is that of fruit and seeds. Pigeons/Doves generally lay small amounts of eggs.They feed their young with special "crop milk" which is manufactured by the parents.
